PRODUCTION NOTES

  • “After taking time off to do a little fishing, Carl is heavy into ‘Midway.’ It’ll be great to finally see the big men spar. It’ll also be nice to have Kavanagh back. Unfortunately, he won’t find his return quite as enjoyable.” (Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi, in a post at his blog)
  • “In Season Three we set up the Midway station. And we’re going to follow that through, through a good part of Season Four. But in sci-fi nothing lasts forever and the best laid plans often go awry. So if you get your heart set on the Midway station, you may be disappointed.” (Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi, at the Stargate Atlantis Comic-Con panel)
  • “Christopher Judge showed up this year, which was fantastic. And it was actually — it made a lot of sense. Most of the episode he does is with Ronon, and as the resident expert on being the new alien on board, Teal’c has a lot of information he can pass on to Ronon, a lot of expertise.

    “When I talked to Joe Mallozzi he said the fans have always wondered in a fight between Ronon and Teal’c, who would win. So this episode sort of addresses that.” (Actress Amanda Tapping, in a Stargate Atlantis media press conference)

  • “Damn fine episode. Teal’c and Ronon kick mucho Wraith ass — when they’re not beating the crap out of each other.” (Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi, in a message at his blog)
